it s amazing that you have changed all the things about vocal in my head. i m studying jazz in turkey and we dont have a vocal teacher.so i think i am asking you for an advice? what can i study?
How exciting that you are on a path studying something you love. I studied very little jazz formally. I mostly listened to Bobby McFerrin and Ella Fitzgerald. Then found I a teacher and moved to where she lived. Good luck on your journey.
